The G sync demo.

Basically here is what they say:

Wake from Sleep (Backlight) - Send it in for the fix

Color Banding - Send it in for the fix

Problems with Overclocking at 100hz - They say up to 100hz, so even if your monitor only does 65hz, its considered normal

Coil Whine - This is normal and not a defect according to them:
"This is caused by the strain and release of a capacitor that is designed to absorb electical charges from the powering of the device. That release from the capacitor can cause vibrations which can be audible in certain environments. This activity is considered normal and does not require any action from the user or Acer."

Scanlines - Currently being evaluated

So ASUS announce a release date for their monitor, then a day after ACER make a comment on the forum and say that "Scanlines are currently being evaluated" seems something might be going on here, is this a sign of ASUS PG348Q not having them.

What a joke :doh:

 

OcUK said that Acer confirmed them that if the monitor somehow does not reach 100 Hz the users can RMA it and now they're saying it is perfectly normal it might not reach it. I just knew it would end up like this when I read that reply on the OcUK forum :rolleyes: 

 

They said "up to" was just because you could choose anything from 60 to 100, now they went back and say it just "might" go up to 100.

Looks like the ROG CES page shows the PG348Q has a straight up 100Hz refresh rate, none of this "maybe" BS.

"A 34-inch gaming monitor with an Ultra-Wide Quad HD (UWQHD) (3440 x 1440) panel, 100Hz refresh rate and Nvidia G-SYNC technology."

Definitely another reason to toss the Acer.

Returning this monitor next week and not looking back. Was going to keep playing the lottery but since Acer is justifying their terrible QA as business as usual, it's going back. At least Asus is marketing theirs as 100hz, I will have to just hope I never need to RMA it with them, because it will probably either be be rejected, be sent back in the exact condition or take months to complete. Sad that these are the only options so far.

It really sucks some of you guys are having a hard time with your x34. I am so very very satisfied with mine. A friend of mine just picked his up last week as well and hes been able to OC to 100hz no problem as well as no QC issues. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that we bought some of the newest ones?
post #818 of 3056
What store/retailer did you and your friend get them from? Also what is the manufacturing date - it should say on the box on the white sticker.

I have a November built unit and it only OCs to 95 Hz. Anything higher results in flickering/black screen. Also has coil whine on white pages and BLB which is a little worse than my earlier October built unit. Looking to swap it out one last time at Microcenter and hope I come out a winner.

Only reason I am tempted to keep playing the lottery is that I got monitor at a deep discount which will be near-impossible to replicate at another retailer.

The pre-order price on OCuk is I think ten pounds more than the x34. So they're about the same price. I expect to pay a difference of $10-$40 Canadian.
